He knows a lot about maths but has difficulty explaining it to students. You'll have to learn by yourself by either reading the textbook or through the Internet, which can be time consuming and annoying. All in all, take another teacher if you can.

Very lazy and his classes are really boring. He has no authority and basically reads from the book. Fortunately, his exams are easy, but I learned the material for Linear Algebra all from the book, not his lectures.

I had him for cal 2. I would not really recommend him, though he isn't the worst. Positives include no webwork, easy exams, no final exam/quizzes. He is a pretty funny teacher too.
Negatives include very disorganized classes , weird marking scheme on exams, horrible handwriting and confusing class notes/explanations.

He is a really nice teacher and like to make his classes entertaining! If you can self teach yourself calculus and math is your best subject you should definelty take him as a teacher because you will have amazing grades because his tests are easy and are only 5 questions! Although if you know that you cannot teach yourself calculus you should not take him as a teacher because you wont succeed. Your grade is only based on tests because he doesnt belive in webwork or quizzes!

Really funny. I would always laugh in his class. His exams are easy but the teacher itself is not quite useful. He reads his calculus manual. He knows maybe a bit too much about maths. You have to learn a bit by yourself, but if you are self "sufficient" you will be good. But you might not learn a lot. As soon as I finished his class, I forgot all about calculus and I had a hard time in physics

easiest exams ever!! you can easily have a good mark in his class! only he explains soooooo badly the course that you need to try to understand everything by yourself..attendance not very required but still can be helpful at times. He doesnt really seem to care about the students or about teaching calculus, he always laughs in class, hes a funny man. Anyways if you want to pass a course the easy way take him.

Chambers is a genius who thinks we are geniuses. Most of his explanations aren't clear, but he is very knowledgeable. His test are the easiest thing, but each mark lost is a percent lost on your final

He is THE teacher to take for linear algebra. We finished the class for good 1 1/2 weeks before end of semester. Tests are easy and straight forward. Class avg is really high. Easy to get 90s or 80s

Not a really great teacher, you need to get the concepts by yourself because he doesn't explain very well. Once you get how he works though, it's fairly easy to understand where he's going on the board. Tests are easy, you just need to understand.

Honestly, if you're stuck with him don't even bother going to class, just study out of the book (making sure that you do the right chapters) and you'll do more than fine on his tests.

He's not a teacher but a lawyer who wants extra pay. Get a tutor, read the textbook & CD or else you'll fail. Notes are useless but there are only 4 tests and they decrease in difficulty!
